Mudlick Tap House, 135 E. Second St., is offering a free build-your-own burger with the purchase of a burger through the end of the month.

It started just after the New Year.

The offer is part of the restaurant's campaign to attract new customers and offer an incentive to current ones, Mudlick's co-owner Jennifer Dean said.

“Every month the offer will change to build repeat business,” she said.

The first offer was a free pretzel and beer cheese.

Instructions on how to redeem the discount are sent once the customer provides his or her email address.

Dean said the restaurant will use the email to send additional deals and information to customers.

"We are not collecting any of your (Facebook) profile information," she said. "I send maybe ten emails (to customers) a year."
